Executive Summary:<br><br>
ARC Half Marathon – 9/8/07<br><br>
Onondaga Lake Park – Syracuse, NY<br><br>
Goals:2:00 hours<br>
Don’t break anything<br>
Have a good time<br>
Training run<br><br>
Results:1:58:12<br>
9:02 m/m pace<br>
Half marathon PW (personnel worst)<br><br>
The Details:<br><br>
Awoke at 5:00 A.M. and it was warm and sticky, 75 degrees and 75% humidity, yuck. The plan was to get 5 miles prior to the race and then run the race at a very conservative pace (9’ish).<br><br>
Arrived at the course and did 5 miles on one of the out and backs. It was warm and sticky. Not good conditions for this penguin. I was glad this was to be a training run. Twenty minutes before the start of the race we had a little lightning and a quick downpour. When the rain stopped it was even more humid. Someone joked that it was about 115%.<br><br>
I ran easy and walked through the aid stations and even walked up a couple of the small hills. I caught up to a buddy around mile 5 and as he stated that he was dying. The sun had come out and was heating things up and turning the place into a sauna as the heat cooked the water off the road.<br><br>
The rest of the race was pretty uneventful as I continued on my liesurely jaunt, chatted with anyone who felt like talking, ambled through the aid stations, and stopped to stretch a couple of times. I crossed the line at 1:58:12. I set a half marathon PW!!!! Woohoo!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_cheers.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="cheers"><br><br>

I remember Saturday. It was wicked hot and wicked humid. That's pretty sweet to take it easy on a hot day and come in under 2 hours for a half-marathon.
